Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to a home cleaning appliance (10) including a housing including a nozzle (12) having a main suction opening (24) and a brush. An air stream suction source (16), mounted to the housing, includes a suction airstream inlet (62) and a suction airstream outlet. The suction source selectively establishes and maintains a suction airstream from the nozzle main suction opening to the airstream outlet. A cyclone main body (70) is mounted to the housing and is in communication with the nozzle main suction opening. The cyclone main body includes an upstream, first, cyclonic separator (88) for separating dust from dust-laden air, and at least one downstream, second, cyclonic separator (90) for separating remaining dust particles from the air. A dirt cup (80) is connected to the cyclone main body. The dirt cup includes a first particle collector (82) communicating with the first separator for collecting dust particles separated by the first separator, and a second particle collector (84) communicating with the at least one second separator for collecting dust particles separated by the at least one second separator. The first particle collector and the second particle collector are configured to empty independently of each other.

La présente invention concerne un appareil de nettoyage ménager comprenant un logement comprenant un suceur ayant une ouverture d'aspiration principale et une brosse. Une source d'aspiration de flux d'air, montée sur le logement, comprend une entrée de flux d'air d'aspiration et une sortie de flux d'air d'aspiration. La source d'aspiration établit et maintient de manière sélective un flux d'air d'aspiration allant de la source d'aspiration principale du suceur à la sortie du flux d'air. Un corps principal à cyclone est monté sur le logement et est en communication avec l'ouverture d'aspiration principale du suceur. Le corps principal à cyclone comprend un premier séparateur cyclonique en amont permettant de séparer la poussière contenue dans l'air poussiéreux, et au moins un deuxième séparateur cyclonique en aval permettant de séparer les particules de poussière contenue dans l'air. Une coupelle à poussières est raccordée sur le corps principal à cyclone. La coupelle à poussières comprend un premier collecteur de particules communiquant avec le premier séparateur pour collecter les particules de poussière séparées par le premier séparateur, et un deuxième collecteur de particules communiquant avec ledit ou lesdits deuxièmes séparateurs pour collecter les particules de poussière séparées par ledit ou lesdits deuxièmes séparateurs. Le premier collecteur de particules et le deuxième collecteur de particules sont configurés pour être vidés indépendamment l'un de l'autre.
